World's Longest Mobility Scooter Has Room For Chauffeur
STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:
And our last word in business is: Limobilizer or maybe it's limo - bilizer.
There are many kinds of stretch limos on the road - stretch Cadillacs, stretch Hummers, stretch BMWs.
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
Now you can add stretch mobility scooter to the list. A British company has just entered the Guinness Book of Records for the world's longest mobility scooter. These are the four-wheelers that many seniors use to get around.
INSKEEP: The Limobilizer is a three-seater - room for two passengers and a chauffeur. It features a mini bar, ice bucket and sound system.
GREENE: Of course, it does. It might be a little hard to maneuver when you're turning corners in a crowded store, but you do have the chauffeur for that. And given some running room, this thing can reach top speeds of four miles an hour.
GREENE: That's the business news on MORNING EDITION from NPR News. I'm David Greene.
INSKEEP: I'm Steve Inskeep.
